One of the best 80s rock albums,
This review is from: Dr. Feelgood (Audio CD)
This album is a tour de force of classic 80s rock. This is Motley's Appetite For Destruction. Granted, it might not have aged quite as well as Appetite, but the meat and bones of the songs still stand the test of time. There are brilliant riffs, great solos and consistantly great songwriting throughout. The highlights? "Don't Go Away Mad (Just Go Away)" starts as a beautiful melancholic accoustic number, before launching into a rockier second half and is undoubtedly one of the best Motley songs ever. "S.O.S. (Same Ol Situation)" is an unashamedly fun and catchy rocker, with more hooks than a fishermans tackle kit. "Kickstart My Heart" and "Dr Feelgood" are the albums megahits, both great anthemic rock tracks with chunky riffs and plenty of attitude. The album closer "Time For Change" is a great piano-laden rock ballad, it's cheesy as hell, but a solid track nonetheless.
The whole album is killer - there's not a weak track in sight. Definately one of the best rock albums of the 80s.
